HARVEST 2012 – CREATING A WICKED BUZZ
Written by Rick on August 3, 2012
The Traveling Vineyard’s 2012 Harvest Annual Convention is approaching, and we are getting fired up for an unforgettable weekend! Our Independent Wine Consultants are jet-setting from all over the country and we have a fun filled, jam-packed itinerary planned!
As we learn, network and embrace the company of world class wine (oh, life is rough when you work in wine) … social media also allows us the opportunity to share all the happenings of this incredible weekend with those that can’t make the trip and those that are interested in what we do! Read up – there is a buzz in the air…
Get Your Harvest Buzz On

The Traveling Vineyard Harvest is at the Boston Marriot Peabody just north of the city, and known to be a wicked good time. Some of the fun activities planned include our Grape Stomper Welcome Reception, a night out in historic Salem and our Let’s Grow Together Gala Reception & Dinner Awards Banquet. Let the good times roll and share your memorable moments using hashtag #TTVHarvest. Tweet your fun, hilarious and memorable moments so we can all share in the experience!
